Oh, thank you so much Rob!
I've had a fondness for this young lady ever since she first appeared on our screens in 'Coronation Street', as a misguided young thing who hung around with the unsavoury likes of the domineering Connor, who was corruption personified.
I knew there had to be a good side to her, and she has been emerging for a while now! She latches on and loves very easily, which makes it easy for us to see how she ended up in the wrong company.
At just 5ft tall, Dolly-Rose's character of Gemma looks a great deal younger than the age she plays. I remember it mentioned in one episode that she was 28 or 29 and I thought, "Come off it! She looks like a little girl!"
As is so often the case with shorter girls, especially ones who wear their hair in ponytails, as Gemma does, it does seem to buy her a ticket to eternal youth! She could pass for 17 or younger and sometimes when she talks overly suggestively, you can think "Shouldn't her parents be informed of their daughter's wayward behaviour before she puts it to practice and becomes another gymslip Mum?"
But, let's face it, Gemma is a character in a soap, but soaps do reflect everyday life, and there are 5ft-nothing girls out there who look misleadingly young! Dolly-Rose is one of them, but I bet when she's all done up for the BAFTA's, she looks every inch the young woman she is. I believe she's 30, and will be 31 some time this year.
I can't see Dolly-Rose lying about her height either! Though I have yet to read an interview with her, which I'm itching to do, I'm sure she's open and honest about being the tiny, but comely bundle of fun that she is and that she owes her success on just that!
I go for 5ft exactly, which is what I found in her wikipedia late last year!
CelebHeights likes to document actors of all heights. Like life, people vary tremendously in stature.
